Getting married can be one of the most stressful times in a woman’s life. There is so much to worry about — from the guest list to the catering arrangements, walking down the aisle comes with a laundry list of tasks that need to be addressed. One of the first questions you need to ask yourself as a blushing bride-to-be is, “who will be my bridesmaids?” After that, the task of picking gifts for the important women in your life begins. It can be difficult to find something special for each one that is both meaningful and shows your full gratitude. Here are some ideas that you may consider when buying bridesmaids gifts for 2019.


One of the most common gifts that brides will give their wedding party is jewelry. A necklace, bracelet or earrings are the perfect gifts for your bridesmaids to have as a keepsake and wear the day of the wedding. Adding an engraving — whether it be a quote, the date of the wedding or something symbolic can add so much sentimental value. If your wedding is on a strict budget, make sure to comparison shop before you purchase these items.

A Personalized Photo Album

Although it may be challenging to hand-make a scrapbook for each of your bridesmaids, finding a service who can put your favorite photos together into a memorable souvenir is a great idea. This way you can spend time together, reminiscing about memories of the time you have spent together. Personalizing gifts like this make all the difference to your bridal party and will bring a smile to their faces for years to come.

Makeup Kits and Accessories

In 2019 makeup kits and pallets have increased in popularity. They can be customized depending on each of your bridesmaids’ skin shade and preference. Additionally, there are many self care accessories that you can include with these kits. Cleansing face washes and skin care treatments for blemish-prone skin are perfect to include in a gift bag. Many times, brides will include shampoo samples or similar hair treatment kits that help keep your scalp healthy between haircuts. High quality beauty products will always be a hit with any girl especially if it’s something that will keep their skin and hair looking flawless not only for your wedding day but for days after.

Personalized Gift Basket

Putting together a personalized gift basket with each of your bridesmaids’ favorite things is always a great idea because it’s both personal and fun.. Their favorite snacks, framed pictures, wine, and gift certificates can all be arranged within an elegantly wrapped package. This could even incorporate the theme of the wedding if there is one. There’s no need to be extravagant with this gift either — as long as each item is symbolic, it will resonate with your bridesmaids and the impact you have had on one another.

A Spa Day

Lastly, many brides will choose to gift their entire bridal party a spa day before or after the big day. It is one of the best ways to unwind, spend time together, and build a stronger bond with each other. There’s no better way to spend an afternoon than being pampered with your best friends.
